Today my hubbin is HOME...I know most of you don't know that he has been away from home for almost 2 weeks... He has been extremely busy (which is great for his new business, but makes for some lonely nights for both of us) so I haven't had very much time with him...BUT...Today he arrived back home around 6:00 this evening...He called to let me know he had landed and would be home very soon...Well, folks being the goober I am...I started crying ( I know I can't believe I'm admitting this for all the world to see...hmmm)...I don't know why other than I have missed him a lot more than usual this trip...maybe because it is Christmas time...maybe b/c I've been a little under the weather or just MAYBE I'm an emotional menopausal wreck...either way...when he told me he had landed and I knew he was safe and sound...The "fireworks" began or should I say the water-works...my heart just about exploded...poor guy...thinks he's coming home for some R & R and I'm just a mess. However, it did get me to thinking about all the people in the world who won't be with family during this holiday season...most especially the men/women of our military...Thanks to them I CAN see my husband when I need to...and I CAN celebrate Christmas however my heart desires AND I can feel free to express my thoughts, emotions and beliefs without fearing for my life! So, all in all I am very blessed...I can dry my tears and not fear what tomorrow may bring...so with that...I want to THANK all the individuals in the military and their families for ALL they do for us! God Bless them ALL...and be with them and their families during this holiest of seasons!
If you're wondering what the picture and title are about...well, in my mind (thinking I might be clever) when I saw the exploding fireworks...it made me think of how happy my heart was to have hubbin home and to be loved, plus it reminded me of the fact we live in a country were we can celebrate FREEDOM...the weeping willow would be me (for being a cry baby) plus the fireworks look like a big ole' weeping willow tree...so that is THAT connection...and the Thank You is the least I can say or do for our service men/women and their families/friends!
God Bless all of you...I don't think I'll be back to posting until after Christmas...I have my hubbins undivided attention...and I'm taking full advantage of it!!
I love THIS man>>>>>>
